The financial crisis in both Europe and the US is deepening, so it is no wonder that the November top-10 of most sought-after speakers of the China Speakers Bureau has a few of our financial specialists on top. Both Shaun Rein and Victor Shih have been trying to dispel especially European hopes China could bail their economy out.
In Brussels and other European capitals Hu Jintao is wrongly seen as an uncle Scrooge, sitting on three trillion US dollar worth of capital, he can spend at will. As Victor Shih explains (we have added a video here), China has to be very prudent is spending its money abroad, since many wealthy Chinese take their assets abroad, leaving China with a huge debts. (And that is of course the popular subject of Rupert Hoogewerf or Hurun).
For those who are on Google+. We have started an experiment with a business page of the China Speakers Bureau. You can put us in your circle.
